With less than five months to go until TFNation 2019 we are pleased to open applications for our Cosplay Competition.

The competition takes place during Saturday night's ClubCon event, and is split into two categories: Mech and Human.

Mech Cosplay: Includes full and partial rig costumes, which replicate the appearance of robot characters from Transformers.

Human Cosplay: Includes human characters from Transformers, such as Verity Carlo and Spike Witwicky, holomatter designs such as those seen in the IDW comics, and humanised interpretations of Transformers robot characters.

Presently, we do not have a separate group competition. However, if you wish for your entry to be judged as part of a group, rather than individually, please notify us using the additional information field on the form.

There will be two sets of first, second and third place winners – one set from the Mech category and one set from the Human category.

The Cosplay Contest will have three segments: pre-judging, then the parade, followed by the announcement of placings and prizes by the judging panel.

Pre-judging is presently scheduled to take place at 5:00pm in the Kings Suite (Club Con), before the room opens to attendees at 6:00pm. Please note: these timings are subject to our final schedule of events and therefore may change - don't worry, we will make an announcement if necessary.

The judging panel will be chosen in advance by TFNation Ltd. The judges will choose the winners based on the following criteria:

  • Accuracy of design
  • Creativity of design (for humanised designs)
  • Craftsmanship
  • Execution
  • Performance

To register you must have a valid ticket for TFNation 2019 and be signed in to the website.  Please visit https://tfnation.com/2019/cosplay-competition for the application form and more details

We look forward to seeing you at TFNation 2019, where all are one.
